Oragano is More Than a Pizza Topping
Oragano Can Help Reduce Phlegm and Relieve Coughing.
Many herbals have centuries of proven therapeutic benefits, oregano is one. More than just a topping for pizza, oregano has a long history of use for relieving coughs and cutting excess phlegm.
A long time friend and herbalist suggested that my wife try oregano essential oil in a vaporizer. We did not have any oregano essential oil but found that oregano leaf worked just as well. You can make your own vaporizer, all you need is pan of boiling water, a small hand of oregano and a dishtowel. We grow basil, oregano, rosemary and other herbs as house plants and in our solarium for use in cooking and medicinally, and had lots stashed away in our herb cabinet.
My wife also commented that after using the vaporizer, her facial skin felt more hydrated, soft and pliable. We live in the desert and it takes a toll on any skin that's exposed to the elements.
Oregano's medicinal uses include respiratory infections, bronchitis, arthritis, rheumatism, colds, flu, general infections, sinusitis, asthma, emphysema, glaucoma, amenorrhea and hypertension.
Oregano is high in antioxidants and has antibiotic, anti-viral and anti-infection properties and can boost the immune response helping to ward of the flu and colds.
Oragano is a member of the mint family and may grow as tall as two feet tall under ideal conditions. The plant has oval leaves and lots of pink flowers clustered at the tops of the branches. Oregano grows well in most temperate climates and in window boxes during the winter. Bees love oregano and it's a nice plant to have in the garden to help promote pollination.
An extra sprinkling of oregono on your next pizza will not just spice up the tasted, it may also spice up your health and life in general.
